Gordon’s boat crew is fast disappearing…

GOrdon Brown is being left without a crew to man the boat… Now John Hutton has resigned, after being reported this morning as saying that James Purnell had made the wrong decision… To give you some idea of how it is going down with party activists, here’s the reaction to the news a few minutes ago on the Bournemouth Echo live blog at local election count in Dorset…

I’ve just been speaking to a Labour Swanage Town Councillor, Cherry Bartlett. I broke the news that Hutton had resigned and she held her head in her hands. She said the feeling amongst grass roots Labour is that they will be “slaughtered” at this election and the general mood is one of depression. She said it was a shame because they have one of their best candidates this year, but he doesn’t stand a chance with the national mood as it is.
